Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Aug 25: Apparently blaming Narendra Modi led government for instability in the region, senior Congress leader and former minister Mani Shankar Aiyar Saturday said that there would be change in the sub-continent only when there is end of BJP rule at the Centre.
"There has been a new government in Pakistan. But there will be change in the sub-continent only when there is change in government at New Delhi," Aiyar said in his address at a conference here.
He said that Government of India has to engage Pakistan in the talks for the peace.
"India should hold talks with both Pakistan and people of Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh."
He claimed that hatred has spread in the last over four years in the country. He asserted that there will be a big change after elections and BJP won't come to the power.
This he stated at a conference titled 'Discussion on Jammu and Kashmir and Indo-Pak relations' organised by a civil society group, Centre for Peace and Progress.
He said that separatists have to be engaged in the dialogue. "Talks have to be held with Hurriyat. We met them last year. Even Mohammad Yasin Malik (JKLF Chief) told us that he will meet us in New Delhi," he said.
"There are several reports of committees, working groups, and interlocutors. These reports have to be put on table then discuss with all stakeholders," he said.
Defending Article 35 A, he said that legislation can't be touched for abrogation.
"Article 35 A is in the interest of the nation. It should not be touched. Nobody should make any effort for its abrogation. It has to be maintained," he said.
In the conference, Ghulam Hassan Mir, former minister said that Kashmir is "election agenda for India and Pakistan".
"War is no solution. India has to make Pakistan its best friend. People in Pakistan believe that India is hell bent to eliminate them. India has to regain the trust through talks," he said.
MLA Kulgam M Y Tarigami said talks between India and Pakistan for the solution of Kashmir problem.
Senior PDP leader Nizam ud Din Bhat said "animosity has increased between India and Pakistan".
